Abstract

An image of a target in a far-field range of working distances relative to an image capture system is focused at a first group of sensors in a common, two-dimensional, array of sensors (12), and an image of an optical code in a near-field range of working distances relative to the system is focused at a second group of sensors in the array. The same array is shared in a portable apparatus capable of capturing target images and optical code images without moving any optical components. The apparatus includes an images sensor board (14) carrying the array (12) and lens assembly (22) mounted on a first chassis member (24). A seconds chassis member (26), together with the first chassis member, forms a rigid body for the image engine.
